2, In continuation of these instructions, sanction of the Ministry of Railways is hereby communicated for revision of monthly honorarium for Ayurvedic / Homeopathic dispensers as per following:-
8 hours duration Rs. 11,250/-
4 hours duration Rs.7,500/-
3. Annual allotment for Indigenous System of Medic under SBF (under which Homeopathic and Ayurvedic dispensaries function) at Rs.36 capita, if found inadequate to meet the increase in requirement of funds on account of the above revision in the honorarium, the additional expenditure (necessitated due to revision) under these orders would also be met through re-appropriation from the head “Medical Services” as additional ad hoc contribution to the SBF, and accordingly, the Medical Budget would be suitably augmented from Revenues. Hence PCPOs would advise CMDs about the additional funds required on this account so that the same could be reflected in the budgetary estimates.
